Leo’s Mane Sew Along

Saturday 20 December 2014

On my needles.....

It's been a while since I did a knitting report, mostly because I've been working on stuff that can't be shown. But I've also been working on my Carabe sweater, in between other things. I'm halfway done the second sleeve, so it's getting closer. This is going to be such a comfy and warm sweater. I'm looking forward to getting it done. I knitted it a bit bigger than the last few sweaters I've done, so I should be able to layer this one over thicker sweat shirts and stuff. It's going to need some heavy blocking, though. That front button band pulls up a lot, more than what shows in this picture. I gave it a good tug down, and then snapped the picture before it could snap back up again.
In other news around here... all of my customer quilts needed before Christmas were finished on the 15th, and the last one is getting picked up on Monday. So, for the past 5 or 6 days, I've been able to get some backings done for my own projects, as well as some other gifts, also not able to be shown.
I have one of my own quilt tops that needs to be quilted up that is going to be given as a gift for Christmas, so that's part of what I'll be doing today. I think I'm also going to play with some piecing on my Plus sign quilt. We are done all our shopping, except for last minute groceries. The baking remains to be done, probably on Tuesday. Once all of that, and the Christmas day fun and festivities are done, I'm going to sit down and do a summary of all that I got accomplished this past year, and do some planning for what I'd like to do next year. In the meantime, I'm going to take it easy, and play, and enjoy family and celebrating our Saviour's incarnation.
I'm linking up to Judy's On the Needles.


  1. I new this was going to be a great sweater. Great job on getting the quilts done you need to do. I look forward to following you in the new year to see all your projects.

  2. Looks like it's going to be a nice warm sweater! Merry Christmas!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
